My dd, mom, and I go every Friday looking for garage sales. I have found some great, great finds. I think one of the best earlier this year was the double bike trailer/jogging stroller for $60. Barely used! I don't think any clothes or shoes I've bought for dd have cost me more than a dollar. And all of her toys at grandma's house have all come from garage sales. Loads and loads of them!
Do any of you like going to garage sales? Had any incredible finds?

I don't garage sale, but I need to!  Maybe I will go out this weekend...

This is something my 4 year old and I love to do together. He likes to call it treasure hunting.  I love sharing that time with him, because that was something my grandmother and I enjoyed doing together.

I just use garage sales to look for photo props and that is it.

I LOVE garage sales. I found a ceramic tea set for DD at the last one. It has candles and cloth napkins and little metal spoons and forks and everything. I only paid $5.

YES! We furnished our whole vacation house with things from garage sales and craigs list. I guess the best deal was an awesome daybed with a pop-up trundle underneath for $20. And the best part is,the house looks great! We tried to be selective and take our time to find just the right things.
